Man killed in three-car accident MORAN — A Hutchinson man died Saturday afternoon in a three-vehicle accident north of Moran on U.S. 59. Daniel Joseph Heimerman, 58, Hutchinson, was killed after the pickup he was driving was struck from behind by a dump truck driven by Zachary B. Rose, 21, LaHarpe. Heimerman had been stopped, waiting to turn left onto North Dakota Road from the highway. The impact of the collision knocked Heimerman’s pickup into the path of a southbound

utility vehicle driven by Della J. Dallavalle, 43, Leavenworth, who was southbound on the highway. Heimerman was taken to Allen County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Dallavalle was flown via helicopter to Overland Park Regional Medical Center. Her condition was not immediately available. Rose was uninjured. All three drivers were wearing safety belts, according to KHP. The accident also prompted authorities to divert traffic for several hours while the wreck was investigated.

Rural Opportunity Zones an advantage By KAYLA BANZET kayla@iolaregister.com

Citizens of Iola learned more about Rural Opportunity Zones during See, Hear Iola on Friday morning. Barbara Anderson was the guest speaker for the event. Rural Opportunity Zones are 73 counties in Kansas that offer financial incentives for new fulltime residents. Those who qualify can apply for Kansas income tax waivers for up to five years and/or have student loan repayments up to $15,000. Not all the counties that are Rural Oppor-

Friendship a work of art By STEVEN SCHWARTZ steven@iolaregister.com

Artist Gary Hawk’s painting of an old saddle became one of his most famous and beloved works, and it was inspired by one of his closest friends, Don L. Nichols. “He was the real thing,” Hawk said Friday morning of his longtime friend who lived on a farm south of Iola. The painting, along with the actual saddle, are on display in the entryway of Community National Bank. Don C. Nichols, Nichols’ son, now owns the saddle as well as the family farm since his father’s death in 1990. Don C. calls Hawaii home and spends about one month a year at the farm. “He (his father) and Gary were the best of friends,” he said. They met through involvement in 4-H, when Nichols would take the students to the farm to ride horses. When Hawk started painting full time in the late 1970s, Nichols’ cowboy lifestyle was the perfect setting for several paintings — none more famous than the saddle, however. “It’s been very good to us,” Hawk said. The painting has graced the cover of Kansas! Magazine, “millions of phone books”

across the nation and has been displayed in the capitol building in Topeka. Hawk said he saw the saddle hanging in Nichols’ barn. “When I saw it, I said ‘wow’ and took a picture of it,” Hawk said. “I just had to do it. It has been my pride and joy.” At the beginning, he wasn’t too sure how successful it would be. He nearly sold the painting for $200 to a woman at a western wear store. He

later passed up an offer of $10,000. HAWK BEGAN painting professionally in 1976, when he was working as a boat designer. He told his wife Beverly that he wanted to paint full time, so they borrowed $1,000 from their life insurance policy (enough for one month) and Hawk started painting in his studio. His inspiration came from

tunity Zones participate in the student loan repayment portion. How does one become eligible for Kansas income tax waivers? “The person must establish residency in the Rural Opportunity Zone or ROZ on or after July 1, 2011,” Anderson said. Also, the person must have lived outside Kansas for five or more years before moving to the county and have earned less than $10,000 in Kansas Source Income. See ZONES | Page A6

Rotarians look to develop young group By KAYLA BANZET kayla@iolaregister.com

Iola Rotarians learned how to develop a young Rotary group at their meeting last week. Steve Lovick, Fort Smith, Ark., is the district 6110 Interact chairman. Interact is an international organization of service for youths 12 to 18. The club holds the

same principals as Rotary does and is sponsored by the local club. “It gives them the opportunities to participate in Rotary and provides leadership skills and personal integrity,” Lovick said. Recent clubs that have started Interact are Grove, Okla., Bartlesville, Okla. and Claremore, Okla. See ROTARY | Page A6

Special session to address ‘Hard 50’ law

Robert Sharp

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas legislators plan to make quick work of fixing the state’s “Hard 50” criminal sentencing law during the special session that begins today, but their discussions ahead of the opening gavels have raised other issues about punishing murderers. Lawmakers from both parties see widespread agreement on legislation to rewrite the law allowing defendants convicted of premeditated, first-degree murder to be sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 50 years. A U.S. Supreme Court decision in June raised questions about the law’s constitutionality. A joint legislative committee already has tinkered with a proposal for fixing the law from Attorney General Derek Schmidt, and legislative leaders hope the final version of the measure will pass by Wednesday evening. The issue is relatively simple: Having juries weigh evidence on whether the “Hard 50” should be imposed, rather than trial court judges, as is the case now. But in working on a quick fix last week, legislators already were pondering whether a repaired “Hard 50” law is tough enough, particularly after they boosted penalties for violent sex offenses and other crimes such as human trafficking in recent years. That, in turn, is

Robert E. “Bob” Sharp, 90, Humboldt, passed away Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013, at Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center. Robert Eugene Sharp was born July 20, 1923, in Elsmore. He grew up east of Humboldt and was baptized at the Humboldt Methodist Church in 1924. He graduated from Humboldt High School in 1941 and went to the Navy in 1945. Bob married Margaret Drummond in 1948. They lived west of Humboldt and were in Robert Sharp the cattle business since 1950. Bob always raised and marketed feeder calves. He attended auctions throughout southeast Kansas and was well known amongst cattle buyers and industry leaders. He was still actively buying calves two weeks ago. Bob was mayor of Humboldt from 2007 to 2011. Using his ranching management skills he provided vision, leadership, and direction. To increase citizen involvement, growth committees were created which became action teams involving downtown Humboldt, businesses, and housing. Many people have been and continue to be involved in the accomplishments of Humboldt. Some of the initiatives which took place during his administration include new water mains, new sewer lines, city beautification, swimming pool and park renovation, recruitment of a Dollar General store, and Sterling Heights housing. Humboldt created a new subdivision for Sterling Heights, the first new subdivision for Humboldt in decades. His ultimate vision for Humboldt was for the citizens to be proud of their community and be an active part in rebuilding and restoring a vibrant, dynamic community. Bob was a member of the American Legion in Chanute, Humboldt United Methodist Church, Kansas Livestock Association, and the Kansas State University Steer a Year club. He is survived by his son Craig and wife Sussie Sharp, Humboldt, daughter Ann and husband Bregg Smith, Denton, Texas, and daughter Jean and husband Clarence Waters, Omaha, Neb. He has six granddaughters, two grandsons, and a grandson-inlaw. He was preceded in death by his wife Margaret in 1992, and by his sister Helen Kraxberger. Visitation will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, at Humboldt United Methodist Church. Funeral services will be at 2 p.m., Thursday, at Humboldt United Methodist Church. Memorials can be made to the Bob Sharp Memorial fund and will go to the Kansas State University Department of Animal Science scholarships. Memorials may be left with Waugh-Yokum & Friskel Memorial Chapel of Iola. Online condolences may be left at www.iolafuneral.com.

John Hanna An AP news analysis likely to spur debate about the Kansas death penalty law, which was enacted in 1994 but so far has resulted in no executions. “Anytime you look at a sentencing provision in the law, it’s bound to generate a discussion about whether that sentence and other parts of our sentencing guidelines are reflective of the appropriate punishment,” said House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat. Legislative leaders want to avoid a broader debate over criminal sentencing until lawmakers convene their next regular, annual session in January. When Republican Gov. Sam Brownback scheduled the Legislature’s special session last month, his proclamation called for lawmakers to finish their work by Thursday. Each day costs taxpayers about $40,000. Because lawmakers are in session, the Senate is legally obligated to consider pending appointments, including Brownback’s nomination of his chief counsel, Caleb Stegall, to the state Court of Appeals. Democrats in each chamber also want to soften a state law requiring new voters to provide proof of their

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An economic index compiled from a survey of business leaders in nine Midwest and Plains states rose slightly last month, the first increase since March. The Mid-America Business Conditions Index hit 53.8 in August, compared with 53.5 in July. Creighton University economist Ernie Goss oversees the survey, and he says the results point to growth for the final quarter of this year but at about half the rate of the first quarter. The survey results are compiled into a collection of indexes ranging from zero to 100. Survey organizers say any score above 50 suggests growth.

Economic index rises

Kansas law, trial court judges decide whether aggravating factors, such as a defendant torturing a victim or shooting into a crowd intending to kill a single victim, warrants the “Hard 50.” The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June in a Virginia case that juries, not judges, must decide whether evidence warrants a mandatory minimum sentence. The proposal before lawmakers contemplates having the same juries that consider a defendant’s guilt determine whether the “Hard 50” is warranted. The measure calls for new sentencing hearings before juries in pending cases. “This is going to slide through with little opposition,” said Sen. David Haley of Kansas City, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

U.S. citizenship when they register, but the effort isn’t likely to get far because the policy was backed by GOP conservatives now in control. Meanwhile, the “Hard 50” fix is generating little controversy, except for skepticism among defense attorneys that the changes can be applied retroactively to cases in which defendants are awaiting trial or have sentences on appeal. That issue probably will be settled ultimately by the Kansas Supreme Court, but lawmakers generally don’t want defendants in pending cases to get the alternative sentence, life in prison with parole eligibility in 25 years. “As far as I know, there’s universal agreement,” said Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce, a Hutchinson Republican.

Congress given challenge to lead Syria debate Surely a compliment coming from Russia’s president Vladimir Putin gave members of British Parliament reason to pause. The verbal slap on the back came last week when the Brits voted overwhelmingly to remain mute to the recent atrocities in Syria. Reports confirm almost 1,500 men, women and children succumbed to noxious gases in a single attack on Aug. 21 issued by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. U.S. President Barack Obama has said as a country we must (finally) confront a despot who commits mass murder of his own people. The widespread use of the deadly sarin gas goes against a long-standing global prohibition on the use of chemical weapons, besides being an affront to human dignity. The impunity al-Assad has enjoyed so far — this is not the first time he has been suspected of deploying the poisonous gas — can no longer be tolerated. He has

flagrantly crossed the “red line” Obama rhetorically drew months ago that would warrant military retaliation, the president said Saturday in a national address. AS MUCH as U.S. citizens

are loath to engage in any kind of attack on another Mideastern country, our nation’s leaders must weigh the consequences of action vs. inaction in the case of Syria. Obama is right to bring members of Congress into

the decision-making. For too long U.S. presidents singlehandedly have taken our troops into conflict, partly because partisan politics can get in the way of good decision-making. This time is no different, but the im-

plications of military intervention are so dire that it is imperative a majority of Congress be behind any military strikes that include the United States. Though it’s a crisis of immediate concern, discussion en masse won’t begin until Sept. 9 when Congress reconvenes from the Labor Day break. While waiting another week seems to go beyond the pale, in reality, we’ve waited too long for most Syrians. Already, more than 100,000 have been killed and hundreds of thousands displaced by the civil war. Will a military strike trigger a greater conflict involving Iran aiming its guns on Israel and other U.S. allies? That’s a fear, certainly. But considering the source, nothing new over the past 40 years. Our course must not be determined by idle threats, but by what we deem is our responsibility as leaders of the Western world. — Susan Lynn

Gap in medical services looms By TONY PUGH McClatchy News

WASHINGTON — One month after undergoing a partial hysterectomy in 2011 to remove a rare form of ovarian cancer, Erika Neal of St. Louis got a double dose of more bad news: Her salary as deputy director of a nonprofit museum was being cut and her job-based health coverage was being eliminated. Without insurance, she went more than a year without tests that would tell her whether the cancer had reappeared. Neal continued to work, however, and now relies on an emergency state program to pay for the quarterly tests. But when the program ends in December, she won’t be able to afford the diagnostic tests because her salary has been cut by 75 percent since 2009. As an adult with no children, she’s also ineligible for Medicaid, the state-federal health plan for the poor and disabled. With no options for coverage, Neal rightly fears for her life next year. “I’m always praying, but in 2014, my prayers will be ever more fervent,” she said. “If the cancer comes back and it’s not detected, it’ll kill me. Most ovarian cancers, by the time you find out you have it, you just need to plan your funeral.

So it’s a blessing they have a test for it, but I can’t get the tests if I don’t have health insurance.” Neal could rest easier if she lived in one of the 23 states where Medicaid eligibility

is being expanded for low-income parents and childless adults next year under the Affordable Care Act. Michigan appears close to expanding Medicaid eligibility. But Missouri and 20 other Republican-led states, including Kansas, aren’t participating in the health care law’s Medicaid expansion, fearing the cost would require state budget cuts in other areas. The remaining states are still debating the expansion. That leaves Neal and 5.5 million others in those 21 states to fend for themselves in the “coverage gap,” a bureaucratic twilight zone where people with poverty-level incomes don’t qualify for Medicaid and can’t get tax credits to help buy coverage on the new insurance marketplaces. Enrollment for them begins in October and they open in January.

is costly and fleeting. “If they fail to get an insurance card and don’t have ongoing adequate coverage, that’s how they’re going to continue to get care, in the most expensive, least efficient, least helpful way that they can,” said Ellen Kugler, executive director of the National Association of Urban Hospitals. While the legislative, judicial and executive branches all had a hand in creating the coverage gap, it was not by design. It was an unintended consequence of the 2012 Supreme Court decision that upheld the Affordable Care Act. The law was supposed to provide health insurance for most Americans next year by expanding Medicaid in all states to people earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level. That’s about $15,900 for an individual in 2013, or nearly $32,500 for a family of four. Tax credits would then go to other low- and middle-income people to help them buy coverage on the insurance marketplaces. If the Medicaid expansion was implemented in every state as originally planned, an estimated 22.3 million Americans likely would have gained coverage next year, according to the Urban Institute, a nonpartisan social and economic policy think tank. But when the Supreme Court ruled that states could opt out of the expansion, Republican-led states took advantage. Rather than expand their Medicaid programs, most kept their programs as is — open mainly to the poorest of the poor. In 33 states, parents must now earn less than the federal poverty level — $19,530 for a family of three — to be eligible for Medicaid, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan health care research group. Eighteen of these states limit eligibility to parents in severe poverty, which is 50 percent of the federal poverty level or lower.

Kansas State Fair celebrates 100 years Volunteer wheat By DENISE NEIL The Wichita Eagle

The first official Kansas State Fair opened its eight-day run on Sept. 13, 1913. Fairgoers were abuzz about the Boys’ Sheep Show, and the women were busy preparing their preserves for competition. The premiere entertainment attractions were Alexander The Monkey and the Shaw Comedy Animal Circus. The big headline in the Hutchinson News that day: “Kansas’ Real State Fair Has An Auspicious Opening.” One hundred birthdays later, the Kansas State Fair is preparing for another auspicious opening. The annual

fair starts Friday and runs through Sept. 15 on the Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson. Organizers have planned a big 100th birthday celebration for the event that will both recognize its decades of growth and expansion and pay homage to its homey, farm roots. The celebrating will start early this year. On Monday afternoon, a special 100th birthday parade will proceed through Hutchinson to the fairgrounds, where attendees can stay and enjoy a live band, Pronto pups, free ice cream and more. Once the fair opens, the schedule will be filled with all the expected attractions, from big-

name Grandstand acts to the butter sculpture to the Midway carnival rides. Boys and girls are both allowed in 2013’s state fair sheep show — and there are bears on the bill rather than monkeys. But the schedule also will include throwback events that were once popular at the fair, including an old-time bingo game and a mincemeat pie competition. Several birthdaythemed activities also are planned, including free birthday cake at the opening ceremonies, food vendors frying up birthday cake-flavored funnel cakes and deep fried birthday cake, and a birthday cake competition in the Domestic Arts building. “Certainly, the fair has evolved,” said the fair’s general manager Denny Stoecklein, who

has led the event for the past 10 years. “But a lot of what we’re doing is still the tradition of the fair and why it started 100 years ago. Livestock and agriculture are at the root of it.” As he and his staff busily prepare for opening day, Stoecklein said, they are hoping for good weather, which often results in strong attendance. Attendance last year was 343,007, he said, up a little more than 1 percent from 2011. Birthday buzz should help this year’s crowd count, he said. “The hundredth birthday has generated a lot of excitement,” he said. “And looking at some of other fairs taking place throughout the summer, they’re doing well. Mother nature has been treating them pretty well, and hopefully, she’ll extend us the same courtesy.”

can spread disease Volunteer wheat serves as a “green bridge” that allows for disease spread and insect infestation from this year’s harvested crop to the wheat planted later in the year. As a result, control of volunteer wheat should be an important part of your management program. “Volunteer wheat within a half-mile of a field that will be planted to wheat should be completely dead at least two weeks before wheat planting,” Jim Shroyer, K-State Research and Extension crop production specialist recommends. Shroyer and K-State Research and Extension entomologist, Jeff Whitworth, reviewed some of the most serious potential problems. — The most important threat from volunteer wheat is the wheat streak mosaic virus complex, which is carried by the wheat curl mite. Control of volunteer is the main defense against this complex. — Hessian flies survive over the summer on wheat stubble. When the adults emerge, they can infest any volunteer wheat that may be present, which will keep the Hessian fly population alive and going through the upcoming crop season. — Volunteer wheat is a host of barley yellow dwarf virus, and the greenbugs and bird cherry oat aphids which carry it.

— Russian wheat aphid can also infest volunteer wheat during the summer and move onto planted wheat in the fall. Another reason to control volunteer is that volunteer and other weeds use up large amounts of soil moisture. When water storage is important, such as in summer fallow, volunteer must be destroyed. Many producers may look at volunteer wheat through rose-colored glasses. They may see potential pasture or ground cover to prevent erosion. They also may not want to spend the time or money to control it. Left alone, volunteer wheat can cause some severe problems that will end up costing the producer and his neighbors more in the long run. Destroying volunteer after the new wheat emerges is too late. Two weeks after the volunteer has died is needed to allow insects or mites to leave the area or die before new wheat emerges. Producers should leave enough time to have a second chance if control is incomplete.

landscape. So when he was invited to give a talk at the Salina Public Library on Kansas literature dealing with agriculture and farm life, he was quick to accept. “I teach Kansas literature, so it’s right up my alley,” said Averill, author of three novels and a professor of English at Washburn University in Topeka. Averill was scheduled to speak Thursday at the library exhibit, “100 Years of Agriculture: Past, Present and Future,” that ran through Saturday. Averill was expected to address literature that celebrates the Kansas landscape and farming communities, ranging from seed to harvest, settlement to auction, plowing to planting. Through the discussion of books such as “Sod and Stubble,” a memoir by John Ise, writings by Kansas journalist William Allen White, poems written by those who lived through the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, and other select novels and short stories, Averill hopes to illustrate the changes in environment, landscape, weather and technology that have affected agriculture in Kansas during the last 100 years.

Rotary: seeking younger group Continued from A1

Lovick said the first step is to find someone at the school who is interested in being a sponsor for Interact. Once the school is on board, a club can be formed.

Federer ousted at U.S. Open

RACE ACTION

By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Surrounded by a half-dozen tournament security guards, Roger Federer made the long, slow trek across the U.S. Open grounds from the court in Louis Armstrong Stadium to the locker room in Arthur Ashe Stadium. Head down, he carried a racket bag on his left shoulder. The hour was a little past 8 o’clock on Monday evening, one week to the day before the men’s final is scheduled to be played in Flushing Meadows, and Federer was, once again in this difficult season, heading home far earlier than he is used to at Grand Slam time.

Roger Federer And the words he spoke after his surprisingly straightforward 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-4 loss to 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo of Spain made it sound as if Federer is having doubts about his game.

“Confidence ... takes care of all the things you don’t usually think about,” Federer said. “But I just think it’s been a difficult last three See FEDERER | Page B2

Stuart makes way back to Victory Lane By SCOTT STEWART

Then, Stuart decided to spend some time traveling to other venues, to varying degrees of success. And so, several weeks ago, the prodigal son returned. However, in his absence, many lessons had been learned, and easy pickings were no longer to be found.

Reliever dominant as Royals top Seattle By BOB DUTTON The Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (MCT) — Will Smith, ladies and gentlemen. It’s rarely possible for a middle reliever to take a star turn in a close game, but Smith delivered a killer 41/3 innings on Monday afternoon in a 3-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners at Kauffman Stadium. Smith permitted one hit, on a ball that center fielder Jarrod Dyson lost in the sun, after replacing an erratic Danny Duffy with two on and two outs in the fourth inning. “I don’t know what it was,” Smith said, “but it worked today.” That is major-league understatement. Smith, 2-1, set a career high with eight strikeouts and did so with eye-popping efficiency by throwing just 46 pitches. “He was able to throw a curveball and a slider effectively,” Mariners catcher Mike Zunino said. “Then he was able to get a fastball in there, too, to sort of slow us down and then speed us up. He did a great job today.” It was good enough to enabled the Royals to beat Seattle ace Felix Hernandez, who permitted three runs and six hits 6 2/3 innings before departing after experiencing a cramp in his lower back. “For a couple of innings,” manager Ned Yost said, “it looked like the strike zone was getting expanded a little bit. When you get Felix Hernandez on top of his game with an expanded strike zone, you’re going to be in trouble.” Now add Duffy struggling to find the strike zone...but Smith changed the game’s geometry. “Oh, man,” Dyson marveled, “that dude did a heck of a job on the bump today. Will, he had everything working.” The Royals nicked Hernandez, 12-9, for the tying run in the fourth inning on Mike

competitors. Gary Langworthy Jr. secured a hard-fought runner-up spot, while Jeremy Wilson came from deep in the field to take third. Fourth went to David Matlock. Tyler James finished fifth. John Allen bested the field in Friday’s McCarthy Auto Group USRA Modified feature. Matt Dotson, who won the week prior, finished second. Steven Bower Jr. claimed third.

Kansas City Royals relief pitcher Will Smith throws in the seventh inning during Monday’s game against the Seattle Mariners. The Royals beat the Mariners 3-1. JOHN SLEEZER/KANSAS CITY STAR/MCT Moustakas’ RBI single before a run-and-play with Dyson and Alcides Escobar fueled a two-run fifth. That was it. And it was enough. Smith nursed that lead to All-Star closer Greg Holland, who worked around a twoout single in the ninth for his 30th straight successful save conversion and his 37th overall in 39 chances. The Royals improved to 71-66 and moved, temporarily, to within five games of Tampa Bay for the American League’s final wild-card slot. The Rays played later Monday at Los Angeles. Smith had not pitched

more than three innings since June 29 but seemed to grow stronger as the innings unfolded. “My concern started to heighten when he got done with the sixth inning,” Yost admitted. “I’m thinking, ‘OK, he’s really throwing good, too good to take out of the ballgame.’ “But...we were going to be real quick (with a hook), knowing we had Felix Hernandez against us, and (unlikely to have) too many more opportunities. But he never put us in a position where we had to do anything.” Smith said, “Every time I came in there, Ned was ask-

ing, ‘You all right?’ I’d say, ‘Yeah, I’m fine.’ And I wasn’t lying to him. I was fine. I was able to go back out.” Asked if he could have pitched the ninth, too, Smith nodded. “Yeah,” he said, “but we’ve got a guy (Holland) who is pret-t-t-y good at that.” Smith’s efficiency stood in contrast to Duffy, who never found the comfort zone he flashed in two previous starts. He threw 91 pitches in just 3 2/3 innings — and seemed under constant siege — but yielded just one run. “People will say in my career my biggest enemy is my See ROYALS | Page B2

The Big 12 is 0-2 against the Missouri Valley Conference, and it took a late touchdown by West Virginia to avoid another opening-weekend loss to an FCS team. “That’s the story of the opening week of the season, is who gets beat by somebody they shouldn’t,” Texas coach Mack Brown said Monday. “There’s always a couple, and this year there were a lot more than that.” Nationwide, there were eight FCS teams that beat FBS opponents. That was twice as many such upsets as the opening week of 2012. But that’s not supposed to happen to a league like the Big 12, which going into this season was 103-3 against non-FBS teams. The conference in its 18th season almost matched that loss total in one weekend. “It will grab your attention. Luckily, we were able to get tested and be able to overcome that,” said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen, whose team escaped with a 24-17 win over William & Mary. “At the end of the year, it really doesn’t matter what the score was. It’s about getting the wins.” Defending co-Big 12 champion Kansas State failed to do that against two-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State, then Iowa State lost to Northern Iowa. (Baylor beat Wofford 69-3 in its FCS matchup). The only other FBS leagues with two losses to lower-tier teams were the American Athletic Conference (former Big East) and Sun Belt. The Sun Belt losers were South Alabama, in its first season as a full-fledged FBS team, and Georgia State, a team still See BIG 12 | Page B2

months, you know. Maybe my consistency is just not quite there.� Maybe? This caps a poor-byhis-standards Grand Slam season for Federer, whose record collection of 17 major trophies includes five in a row at the U.S. Open from 200408. This is the first season since 2002 that Federer did not reach at least one final at any of the four Grand Slam tournaments. That year also marked the last time Federer was ranked lower than he is now at No. 7. He exited in the semifinals at the Australian Open in January, the quarterfinals at the French Open in early June, and the second round of Wimbledon — against a player ranked 116th, to boot — in late June. That ended Federer’s record run of reaching at least the quarterfinals at 36 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments. Now, thanks to Robredo, Federer has a new, unwanted streak: Two consecutive losses

before the quarterfinals at majors. This time, the early exit prevented Federer from meeting rival Rafael Nadal in the round of eight at Flushing Meadows, where they have never played each other. In an interview the day before the tournament began, Nadal spoke about how he and Federer “deserved a final here,� the way they met in four title matches at the French Open, three at Wimbledon, and one at the Australian Open (Nadal won six of those eight, part of an overall 21-10 head-to-head edge). Nadal reiterated that sentiment after beating 22nd-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 on Monday night in the fourth round. “Didn’t happen. (That doesn’t) mean cannot happen in the future. We’ll see. Hopefully,� the 27-year-old Nadal said of a U.S. Open showdown with the 32-year-old Federer. “But is true that we are getting older, so the chances are less today than five years ago.�

making that transition. Not exactly the company the Big 12 wants to be in when the goal is break the SEC’s string of seven consecutive national championships. Big 12 teams have three more games against FCS teams this week, including Kansas playing South Dakota in its season opener. Texas Tech plays coach Kliff Kingsbury’s home debut against Stephen F.

The Sooners and Texas don’t play any FCS opponents this year.

Royals: Smith shines in relief in win Continued from B1

pitch efficiency,� Duffy said, “and today I just didn’t have it. But I’ve felt really in control as of late. I expect to have it in my next start.� Duffy stranded six runners over the first three innings but got two quick outs in the fourth before Seattle struck for its only run. Abraham Almonte doubled into the lefty-center, and Brad Miller followed with a triple to right. Right fielder David Lough nearly made a spectacular diving catch on Miller’s hooking line drive. Nearly. It was the first run yielded by Duffy in 16 1/3 innings over three starts. When Duffy walked the next hitter, Yost summoned Smith — and everything changed. Smith

retired nine in a row before Dyson lost Kyle Seager’s fly in the seventh for a two-out double. “I saw it all the way,� Dyson said. “It just got in the sun at the last minute. I couldn’t even tell my corner guys that I couldn’t see it. It was just one of them hangwith-it plays.� Smith responded by striking out Kendrys Morales. Three more outs, on just six pitches in the eighth, got the game to Holland. “Talking with the guys,� Seattle manager Eric Wedge said, “they were able to see his fastball and his curveball, but they were having a lot of trouble picking up the slider for whatever reason. He handled us pretty good.� The Royals pulled

even in the fourth after Eric Hosmer blooped a one-out single into right. He then challenged Almonte’s arm, and won, when Billy Butler snapped a zero-for-16 skid with a ground single up the middle. Moustakas tied the game with an RBI single. Dyson’s one-out bunt single ignited the tworun fifth. First baseman Justin Smoak fielded the ball, but Dyson beat Hernandez to the base for a single. “That seemed to get him a little riled up,� Dyson said. “A little ground ball, and then you beat them out. Then you take a bag or whatever. He seemed kind of upset about that.� Dyson broke for second on a pitch to Escobar, who grounded a

single through the right side that put runners at first and third. “That was no hit-andrun,� Escobar said. “I saw Dyson trying to steal second base, breaking on the pitch, and I said, ‘OK. Try to hit the ball to second base.’ Perfect.� After Escobar stole second, Hernandez bounced a run-scoring wild pitch past catcher Mike Zunino. After Alex Gordon walked, Emilio Bonifacio’s fly to short right turned into a sacrifice fly and a 3-1 lead. Plenty for Smith. “There’s just not a whole lot to say about (the game),� Duffy said, “outside the fact that Will Smith did a heck of a job. His slider is disgusting.� In the best possible way.

Clark at intermission Friday before giving up the tying goal in the second half and the lead goal in extra time. Lexi Godlove gave Allen a 1-0 on a feed from Raegan Vigola. Lewis and Clark scored a tying goal before Kyleigh Rowe took a Vigola feed and scored to push the Red Devils on top 2-1. Keelie Arbuckle fended off a number of shots to keep the Red Devils in the game, including a penalty shot late in the second half. “Lexi and Kyleigh both continue to score for us, and Keelie was just phenomenal in goal,� ACC women’s coach Jeremy McGinnis said. “You couldn’t ask for her to do any more than she did.� Godlove took a Jordan Vigola assist to score Allen’s goal in Sunday’s truncated game. Had the contest lasted another three minutes to

reach halftime, the goal would have counted. “We really wanted to get back out there, but every time the lightning flashed, we had to wait another 30 minutes,� McGinnis said. “We didn’t want to have to get back in the middle of the night and have everybody tired, because we have a big week ahead.� The contests should prepare Allen well for the heart of its schedule, which begins Wednesday at home against Hesston. “Lewis and Clark is a good, quality team,� he said. “We want to play the best teams possible to get us ready for conference play.� FRIDAY’s 4-1 loss was not indicative of how well the Red Devils played, coach Doug Desmarteau said. Allen out-shot Lewis and Clark, 19 to 17. “We had our chances,� Desmarteau said. “We

Victor Ortega started in goal and allowed three goals to go with five saves. Chase Tonkin played in the second half, allowing one goal to go with five saves. The women and men play their home-openers Wednesday afternoon.

The Red Devil women play at 2 p.m., the men at 4 o’clock. “The girls are excited,� McGinnis said. “I think everybody’s tired of traveling.� Desmarteau agreed. “The guys are really looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd,� he said. “They’ll get to play in front of their friends and supporters.

The day featured two of Koenig’s passions: cars and music. Koenig rebuilt his El Camino almost entirely about 10 years ago — “about the only thing I didn’t do was the paint job,� he said. When he’s not doing contract engineering, or tinkering with his car, Koenig plays bass for the Great Plains Jazz Orchestra, a Wichita-based band that performs occasionally around the state, including later this month at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson. The event drew members of the Mid-America Chevelle Club and the Wichita Area Chevelle Owners club.

The car owners met at the southwest corner of Riverside Park for a leisurely afternoon of visiting and music before moving to the America’s Quality Inn parking lot Saturday evening for a free outdoor concert put on by The Tonebenders. Donations accepted during the concert — about $400 in all — went to the Kappa Alpha Chapter of Phi Tau Omega, which raises funds for breast cancer research and support of local cancer sufferers. The concert was so well received, organizer Danny McKarnin said, that several motorists driving by the motel stopped to listen.

Kansas briefs Groups eyes election laws TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Critics of a Kansas law requiring new voters to provide proof of their U.S. citizenship when registering want legislators to repeal it during their special session. The American Civil Liberties Union said today that lawmakers must act because more than 15,000 legal residents have their voter registrations on hold because they haven’t provided proof of their citizenship. Joining the ACLU were the NAACP and Equality Kansas, the state’s leading gay-rights group. Those groups already have told Secretary of State Kris Kobach they might file a federal lawsuit. Kobach contends the law prevents election fraud. Lawmakers were returning today to Topeka to repair a law allowing convicted murderers to

be sentenced to at least 50 years in prison, and their leaders had no plans to take up other topics.

Search continues for shooting suspect WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet says he believes a man suspected of shooting and wounding one of his deputies might be headed to Liberal, where he has several friends. Herzet says officers searching for Jan Kilbourne, 41, are pursuing tips about Kilbourne’s location. The sheriff told KWCH this morning that his department currently is concentrating on contacting Kilbourne’s family and friends. Kilbourne is suspected in the shooting early Monday after a deputy pulled over a car carrying three people on U.S. Highway 54, about 16 miles east of Wichita. The deputy was shot in the shoulder but

was able to return fire. Kilbourne then fled. The Wichita Eagle reported the deputy was treated and released from a hospital. His name hasn’t been released.

Talk planned on excavated village SALINA, Kan. (AP) — A presentation on the recently excavated Kanza Indian village near Wichita is planned this week. Tricia Waggoner, the Kansas State Historical Society’s highway archaeologist, will discuss the history of the Fool Chief ’s Village from 1830 to 1844. The site near Topeka had to be excavated because of a pending road project. The Wichita Eagle reports the free talk begins at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Smoky Hill Museum in Salina. In the early 1800s, the Kanza claimed a territory that covered roughly two-fifths of what is now Kansas.

County land sale a flop JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (AP) — Developers and Geary County officials scrambled to build new housing and infrastructure amid predictions of a population boom from the return of the Army’s 1st Infantry Division to its historical home at Fort Riley. The soldiers arrived, swelling their numbers on the Kansas post from slightly more than 10,000 in 2006 to more than 18,000 by 2011. But the demand for off-post housing never materialized and developers abandoned hundreds of lots — some already equipped with streets, sewers and other infrastructure — that are now in tax delinquency. Now, Geary County is finding the lots a hard sell, even for as little as $1 apiece. A recent tax sale of 280 lots drew a handful of bidders and ended with just 24 parcels sold for a total of $2,276 plus an additional $100 fee per lot to record the deed, according to The Daily Union in Junction City. Most of the proceeds will go toward the coun-

ty’s expenses in arranging the tax sale, which amounted to about $40,000 plus staff time. “The county doesn’t want to be in the realty business,” assistant county attorney Lloyd Graham said. “This is uncharted territory for me. I don’t know that there’s many options” for county commissioners. Officials suspect potential buyers were put off by a special assessment the county had imposed to finance the building boom. While the sale cleared back taxes and special assessments, buyers will pay the future assessment for 15 years — at up to $2,000 or more per lot. “I wish we could have sold more,” said Sheriff Tony Wolf after the auction. “On the flip side, I can’t blame people for the apprehension. This is a very big gamble.” Wolf said the lots that didn’t sell this time at Wednesday’s auction could go to auction again in the next tax sale that’s likely to be in January or February.
